About the Event

No other artist was so true to himself and his own path to finding the most authentic and heartfelt way to represent a scene. With his almost sculptural painting style, his famous chiaroscuro technique, and his genuine interest in the story to be told, Rembrandt developed a uniquely personal style that would eventually bring him into difficulty with his buyers.

Join Mariska Beekenkamp-Wladimiroff in partnership with the New York Adventure Club.

· An introductory to the biography of Rembrandt van Rijn, his love life, and financial misfortunes

· Life in Europe in the 17th century, and in particular in the Netherlands
